DESIGN| NEW SUITE DESIGN REFLECTS LIFESTYLE EVOLUTION

The new guest suites – like many modern condominiums and residences – are centered on the kitchen. Subscribe to The Hospitality Knowledge & Career E-Mag |www.hospemag.com by Email


Editor| I saw something similar at Avalon Resorts Delhi. The TV is on a swivel and you can enjoy it from the living room area of the suite & the bed!

At Hyatt Summerfield Suites Salt Lake City/Sandy and in future locations, guest suites have been redesigned to reflect how people live in their homes today.

“The contemporary kitchen is the living room of 30 years ago. It has evolved into the heart of the house and gathering place – where work is done, guests are entertained and families spend time together,” said Kal. “The full size kitchens featured in our guest suites enable travelers to utilize the space just like they would in their own home.”




In addition to a design that emphasizes the kitchen, Hyatt Summerfield Suites guest suites also offer:

* A 32-inch flat panel high definition television in the living area and bedrooms
* The Hyatt Plug Panel™, which allows guests to plug their portable media devices such as MP3 players, directly into the television
* The plush Hyatt Grand Bed™
* A bright color palate of green, blue, orange and other earth tones inspired by couture fashion
